The driver opened fire on the crowd and was killed in a shoutout with police. According to French authorities, the driver was identified as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, 31.
French President François Hollande had said this was likely an act of terrorism, and authorities said Friday that more than 200 people had been injured and many of them were still in critical condition. Victims include people from France, Switzerland, Morocco, the U.S., Russia and Armenia. Here’s how you can help those affected by the attack in Nice:
